Larry L. says, "George is an amazing musician and a great guy. I bought some guitars as artwork in my house because I’ve always thought they were cool. The only problem was I didn’t know how to play them at all like 0 and it certainly was obviously that I have no natural ability. I know lots of friends that play at really high levels but I knew hanging around them I would never learn anything because it would turn into a social event. I knew I needed a teacher, a real teacher. I found George on this site and luckily he lives only minutes away. From day one he was sure that I learn something at every lesson. Difficult task as I’m not a good student and my attention span is pathetic. If I’m not good at something right away I loose interest. George is so patient and supportive that I won’t give up. I only have time for one lesson a week sometimes less due to my job but lessons with George are one of the few things I look forward to going to. Thanks " Read more

Children can start blues guitar lessons between the ages of 6 to 10 years old at the earliest. The best time is whenever they can hold the instrument easily and have the hand strength to press on the strings.

Adults of all ages can learn to play blues guitar with the right instruction and regular practice.

  • For kids, ask other moms and dads what their kids say about the teacher.
  • Get a plan on paper about when your lessons will be before you start.
  • Pay a little at first to see if you like the teacher before you pay for a whole month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a blues guitar teacher?

To find the best guitar teacher, you could ask these questions:

  • What type of music degree do you have?
  • How long have you been teaching blues guitar?
  • Can I have one lesson for free to see how I like it?
  • What are the ages of most of your students?

  • Will you give me some finger patterns to practice at home?
  • How much should I practice at home between lessons?
  • What books should I get, and do you know where I could find used ones?
  • How many different blues guitar techniques can you teach?
  • If I'm struggling with learning, can you change the way you teach me?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long is each lesson?
  • Can I have a copy of our class plan, agreement, and how much it costs?
  • If I have an urgent problem and need to cancel, what happens?
  • Can I choose some songs that I want to learn?

Reviews for Waterbury blues guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Waterbury area.
Anthony R.
New to I initially contacted a different instructor and was surprised when many other instructors contacted me instead. Phil, however, was the only one that actually addressed what I was looking for in particular in a teacher and had the required know-how to teach it. All the others were very impersonal except for one who was honest and said he was also interested in what I am interested in. The lesson itself was insightful just through getting to know one another as people and players. I caught many things he was doing right off the bat and asked to rewind and slow it a bit. It helps when you know what you’re after in material when you’re working with a pro such as Phil who can pull any rabbit he wishes out of his magic hat. Phil can show you fundamentals to intricacies; hacks and efficiencies. I’ve already started on the road to creating the sound I have in my head. Phil can help you find that too.

He breaks down the music and techniques of how to create the sounds I want from my guitar. He can also listen to a piece of music I want to learn and can know right then what notes/chords are being played. I’m always amazed at how easy he makes it look. I’m very lucky to have found such a great musician to be my teacher.
